30 Crock


Gotta give a little credit to my BFF over at the Huffington Post, Jason Linkins: He really hit it out of the park with this laugh-out-loud comparison of Bobby Jindal and Kenneth from 30 Rock.

Brian Williams introduced him as a future potential candidate for president. So I looked up and paid attention. And laughed for a long time! Although Kenneth Parcells means well, and maybe Bobby does too, but that's not going to be enough, I don't think. Great laugh, though!

Mrs. G and I were beside ourselves with laughter during Jindal's alleged response, ruminating over his earnest high school debate star demeanor. Too bad we don't watch 30 Rock (nor much of anything else, in our defense), because the comparison to Kenneth is chillingly spot-on.

America was rickrolled by Bobby Jindal last night.

This will go down in Jindal history as the "Kenneth the Page" speech.

As I listened, I asked my wife, "why does he sound like he's reading a children's book?"

The astute Nate at fivethirtyeight.com had the answer:

"If it sounds like Jindal is targeting his speech to a room full of fourth graders, that's because he is. They might be the next people to actually vote for Republicans again."

I was thinking the same thing when I saw him. "Americans can do anything!"

I love Sirius' comment and his quote of Nate at fivethirtyeight.com. Pitiful.

There will be plenty of time for Bobby to recover from this. He is a man who loves his country.The governor doesn't want to see us become another Socialist nation like Canada, Denmark, France and Colorado.

My friends and Chez, I'm afraid we are headed in the wrong direction and it looks like Governor Jindal was the first firewall that was broken in the United States' march to surrendering to far weaker nations.

I'm here to tell you that I'm not going to surrender when the Islamists, Communists and SPs land at Gulfport and head in land.
I will warn y'all on that island that they will land at Battery Park. What will y'all do when they confront you?

Good Luck, BW
